Perovskite Materials For Solar Energy
In the multilayer structure of perovskite solar cells (PSCs), the core is the photoactive layer that absorbs light. The main active material in the photoactive layer is a perovskite thin film, which is prepared from a perovskite material (chemical formula is AMX3, where A and M are two cations with large differences in size, and X is an anion combined with the two). In PSC devices, the structure of the perovskite material used as the photoactive layer is mainly an inorganic-organic hybrid structure. n the single-crystal structure of inorganic-organic hybrid perovskite materials, metal cations and halogen anions form regular octahedral structures, in which organic cations intercalate to balance charges. Such a spatial structure enables perovskite materials to have excellent optical, electrical and magnetic properties. Moreover, by changing the type and quantity of organic molecules and hybrid halogen atoms in the perovskite material, the prepared photoactive layer can obtain higher carrier mobility and lower recombination rate.
